About the School

History

In the 1960s UOW offered its first course in Psychology within the Faculty of Arts. By 1969 the Faculty had doubled in size and offered 100, 200 and 300 level programs. In 1973 the Faculty saw its first Honours program commence including a major expansion in staffing. By 2012 UOW offered Psychology courses in Singapore and a 4th year option of studying Honours.

In 2013 the University of Wollongong underwent a Faculty transition seeing eleven Faculties merge into five super Faculties offering a wide range of courses in the areas of Law, Humanities and the Arts, Social Sciences, Science, Medicine and Health, Engineering and Information Sciences, and Business. As a result, Psychology transitioned into the School of Psychology and sits within the Faculty of Social Sciences. The Faculty of Social Sciences includes the School of Psychology, the School of Health and Society, and the School of Geography and Sustainable Communities.
